Former Liverpool midfielder is now training with Anderlecht

Mohamed Sissoko

He has been searching for a club since leaving PSG by mutual consent.

Former Liverpool midfielder Momo Sissoko looks to have taken his search for a club to Belgium with Anderlecht offering him a trial.

The Malian looked set to join Championship club Reading after having his contract terminated by French champions PSG by mutual consent. He was also linked with a move to Premier League newboys Cardiff City. 

Sissoko spent a total of two and a half seasons on Merseyside after signing for the club from Valencia before departing for Serie A giants Juventus.

The defensive midfielder is just 28-years-old, and his career has seemingly come to halt after once being labelled the new Patrick Vieira by Rafa Benitez – who managed the Malian at both Valencia and Liverpool. A couple of Liverpool fans on this website said Reds manager Brendan Rodgers should’ve considered offering Sissoko a return to Anfield on a short-term basis as cover for Brazilian Lucas Leiva.

However, his career seemed to take a turn for the worse after being kicked in the eye during a Champions League match against Benfica for Liverpool when he was perhaps finding his best form.

He only made three appearances for PSG in their Championship winning season. He was loaned to Fiorentina during the second half of last season. Sissoko has won some notable domestic and European honours including the La Liga title with Valencia along with the UEFA Cup before winning the FA Cup with Liverpool in 2006.

If Anderlecht were to offer him a deal they would be getting a player of good pedigree who has played at the top level.
